    Faisal Shahzad gave the impression of a quiet family man, raising two small children with his wife in Shelton, Conn. and telling neighbors he worked on Wall Street. Now the Pakistani-American is accused of trying to detonate a homemade car bomb in New York City's bustling Times Square. Authorities have brought terrorism and mass destruction charges against him, saying he has confessed to receiving explosives training in Pakistan. Shahzad was expected to appear in court Tuesday. CBS News reports that officials intend to arraign Shahzad Wednesday morning in Manhattan Federal Court before a U.S. magistrate. Shahzad has been talking to...

    MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer told a radio host today that she’s disappointed the Times Square terrorist is a Pakistani-American Muslim. Why couldn’t it just be an angry white male? That would make things so much easier for the jihadi-supporting left. The Radio Equalizer reported this from today’s Stephanie Miller Show: GatewayPundit has the audio

    Attorneys who formerly represented al Qaeda members detained at Guantánamo now labor at the Justice Department representing the United States and shaping policy regarding treatment of those detainees. Yet the attorney general refuses to disclose the names of those who worked closely on detainee matters before joining the Obama administration.In mid March in Senate testimony, Attorney General Eric Holder (whose former law firm Covington & Burling likes to tout its work for Guantánamo detainees and who personally filed an amicus brief on behalf of attempted “dirty bomber” Jose Padilla, which he failed to disclose at his confirmation hearings) proclaimed...
  • Cantor: Obama should show Muslims that Islamist terrorists — not Americans — are their enemies

    President Obama should launch a campaign to “to expose Islamist terror attacks on fellow Muslims,” House Republican Whip Eric Cantor told a conservative audience during a national security policy speech Tuesday morning, “instead of apologizing to the Arab world.” “Every time the Taliban blows up innocent Muslim women and children in Pakistan or al-Qaida strikes in Iraq or in any other Arab country, we must broadcast to the world the faces of the victims and point out their killers,” Cantor said at Tuesday’s “Protect America Month” lecture series sponsored by the Heritage Foundation. “In the battle of ideas, we win...

    It appears that it wasn't only media types such as MSNBC's Contessa Brewer who were disappointed that the Times Square bombing suspect turned out to be a Muslim. They were joined by virtually the entire leftwing blogosphere in their frustration that the suspect wasn't a tea party activist or a member of a "rightwing" militia group. Before the identity of the bombing suspect was made known, Kossack "waterboard sean" conducted a poll on who the perpetrator could be. And here are the hilarious results of that poll (I am using Kossack terminology here): An al Qaeda terrorist ---4%An American sympathetic...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) on Tuesday said the Obama administration has been more successful in combating terrorism than its predecessor. “We're tough on terrorists. That’s our policy. That’s our performance. And, in fact, we've been more successful,” Hoyer said at his weekly press availability. Former President George W. Bush’s presidency was dominated by the issue of terrorism, and Bush’s vice president, Dick Cheney, has taken several shots at Democrats and President Barack Obama for endangering national security. Hoyer’s remarks Tuesday appeared designed to counterattack Republicans looking to the attempted bombing Saturday in Times Square as evidence that Democrats...

    Chase sued him in September after he defaulted on $200,000 loan The suspect in the Times Square bombing attempt defaulted on a $200,000 mortgage on his Connecticut home, court records show, and that the property is now in foreclosure. The foreclosure records show Faisal Shahzad took out the mortgage on a home in Shelton, Conn., in 2004, and he co-owned the home with a woman named Huma Mian. Chase Home Finance LLC sued Shahzad in September to force the foreclosure. The case is pending in Milford Superior Court. Former neighbors described him as a family man who reportedly said he...

    The American left must be disappointed this morning to learn that the suspect in the failed Times Square bombing is not the longed-for "Caucasian male" right wing extremist. Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized American citizen of Pakistani origin, most likely has never attended a tea party, and so far as we know is not on record opposing ObamaCare. Mr. Shahzad did, however, recently spend some months in his native Pakistan. A thirty year-old, he reportedly owns homes in Shelton and Bridgeport, Connecticut, largely working class communities in the wealthiest state in the union. A man of property, able to travel the...

    In another blow to the Obama regime’s attempt to blame whitey for all of the country’s ills (Hey, if such respected media outlets as the Washington Post and CNN can play the race card, so can I), the “Health Care Protester” the Left fervently prayed for in the “Case of the Bungled Time Square Bomb”, turns out to be 30 year old Faisal Somethingorother from, wait for it, Pakistan. Like the two white males we were desperately seeking during the sniper in attacks in Maryland and Virgina, we wonder how much time was wasted looking for a Tea Party connection...

    When the Times Square story first broke there was a part of me that said, “Man, I hope it’s not some white militia nutjob.” When I saw the news this morning that it was a Pakistani, the same small part of me was relieved. I don’t want to speak for many conservatives on this, but I know I’m speaking for more than just myself. And, I will simply assert that I believe lots of liberals had something very close to the opposite series of reactions (here’s one small example of what I’m talking about).

  • Faisal Shahzad (Failed Car Bomber) was a Registered Democrat

    05/04/2010 9:51:10 AM PDT · by Scythian · 137 replies · 5,164+ views
    An Islamic terrorist named Faisal Shahzad is the Time Square bomber according to media reports. He is Muslim of Pakistani heritage with dual citizenship in the United States, a registered Democrat in the state of Connecticut who may be an Obama donor. He was recently naturalized as a U.S. citizen under the Obama administration’s lenient open door policy. Shahzad Faisal as identified by NBC News, or Faisal Shahzad as identified by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, is a U.S. citizen of Pakistani origin. He was arrested at JFK airport in New York trying to flee the country back to Pakistan...

Boohoo. Here's an idea: next time, try not being an (alleged) terrorist. "It can confirmed that his house has been foreclosed in recent years. I mean, one would have to imagine that brought a lot of pressure and a lot of heartache on that family." "Yeah, she said July of 2009 they left and then shortly after that they...

    Still tracking down that news but one thing is clear: he wasn't a Tea Partier!There are reports that Faisal Shahzad, the failed Time Square bomber was a registered Democrat in Connecticut and may be a donor to Obama's campaign. This comes after the Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg openly speculated that the bomber might be “somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something." Coming on the heels of repeated warnings from Obama, Bill Clinton and others that Tea Parties might lead to violence it was only natural for libs to assume this attack...

She complained, "I get frustrated...There was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country." [Audio available here.] Brewer continued, "...There are a lot of people who want to use terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way....
